Inside Madison LeCroy's Destination Wedding

Somebody give Austen Kroll a shoulder to cry on because Madison LeCroy finally tied the knot with Brett Randle. The Bravo "Southern Charm" star has had her fair share of ups and downs in relationships, her most notorious being her tumultuous relationship with cast mate and ex-boyfriend Kroll (that threesome scandal, anyone?). But despite stirring up trouble on the hit show thanks to her sassy personality, the Maven founder seemed to have found her match — far away from the drama of the Bravosphere. Randle has never appeared on the show and keeps a low-key profile off social media — so we guess opposites do attract. And did we mention he's Mormon? She certainly traded beer businessman Kroll up for someone more sanctified, and we can only hope this one sticks!

According to People, the couple wed in an intimate destination wedding after tying the knot legally in Charleston. Despite her life largely in the spotlight, LeCroy and Randle opted for a private affair –  meaning the "Southern Charm" camera crew and many of her cast mates didn't make the guest list. For as intense as LeCroy can be, with her no-nonsense demeanor and the shade she has no problem throwing on the show, the bride told People her ceremony was "a super chill, relaxed day — isn't that every bride's dream?" 

We're not getting any bridezilla vibes from this Southern starlet, who was happy to wed far away from the hustle and bustle of Charleston. We're giving you the inside scoop of Madison LeCroy's destination wedding.

The proposal

For Madison LeCroy, love at first sight really does exist. The hairstylist told Us Weekly that there was no doubt in her mind after meeting Brett Randle for the first time that he was the one. "I went home that night and I [told my friends], 'I'm going to marry that man,'" she told the magazine adding "They were like, 'Ah, whatever, you know, we've all said that.' And I was like, 'No, no, no, no, I'm not kidding. I'm marrying him.' And sure enough, little did I know, here we are."

Randle popped the big question in the sweetest way, with the help of LeCroy's only son, Hudson, who was eight at the time. The former basketball player asked LeCroy's son for permission to be his stepdad, and Hudson's only request was to be involved in the proposal. Randle organized a limo for the trio to Kiawah Island at Hudson's suggestion, but he ended up getting down on one knee in LeCroy's home after an unexpected rainstorm. "He proposed to me in the living room, and my son's behind him, just clapping," LeCroy told Us Weekly. "I completely, like, blacked out at the point of whatever he was saying. I had no idea. ... It was perfect."

While the proposal came just seven months after meeting each other, LeCroy told Us Weekly that the duo started talking about walking down the aisle just four short months into their relationship. As for the rock, the former basketball player settled on a custom-made diamond by Nicole Rose Fine Jewelry for his "Southern Charm" star bride-to-be. 

Making it official in South Carolina

Madison LeCroy and Brett Randle tied the knot legally in Charleston before heading off to their tropical destination wedding. The hairstylist shared photos on Instagram from the civil ceremony that showed her and her hubby gleaming in a retro-styled photoshoot outside the South Carolina courthouse. The bride wore a figure-hugging sleek cocktail dress paired with a shoulder-length veil and Chanel sunglasses as she posed alongside her husband in a vintage Triumph sports car. 

LeCroy's "Southern Charm" costars weighed in on the chic nuptials via the hairstylist's Instagram post — ex-boyfriend Austen Kroll not included. Charleston socialite Patricia Altschul commented on the professional photos, writing, "So chic and beautiful." South Carolina restaurant connoisseur Leva Bonaparte was also supportive, writing, "Happy wedding week," and Kathryn Dennis commented with a heart emoji. 

Though the civil ceremony was held in Charleston, Randle divides his time between the east and west coast. The California native works as an account manager for Nike, and the couple makes it work despite their jobs requiring them to spend time on separate coasts sometimes. "We don't get to see each other every single day, which just makes us love each other even more," LeCroy told People. "Has anyone ever done a long-distance marriage? Because it's really working out for us!" The couple owns a charming Southern-style house together in Pleasantville, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston.

The dreamy destination ceremony

Madison LeCroy first broke the news about her tropical wedding location on Instagram writing "Get in honey, we're going to Mexico," alongside a childhood video of the Southern starlet in what looks to be a wedding dress, singing about going to Mexico. "Literally last week my family showed a video of my 5 yr old self singing this song we all had chills... when you know you know," the "Southern Charm" star wrote.

The Maven founder and Nike account manager tied the knot in an intimate sunset beach wedding at the Chablé Maroma resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico. "We didn't want to have some elaborate wedding here in Charleston with 300 people. That just wasn't our vibe," LeCroy told People. "And if it wasn't for Hudson, we probably would have just eloped and [not done] a wedding." 

The destination was a previous vacation spot for LeCroy and Randle, who chose the location because they knew their guests would enjoy it just as much as they had. "But he wanted something special so we chose the beach," she said, "And we kept it really small, no bridesmaids or groomsmen, just our nearest and dearest."

The bride and groom's attire

"Southern Charm" starlet Madison LeCroy dazzled down the aisle in not just one, but two gorgeous wedding dresses on her special day. For her beachside ceremony, the bride wore a white Reem Acra gown with small white flowers individually sewn onto the dress from top to bottom. The gown featured a sweetheart neckline, fitted bodice, princess skirt and cap sleeves. The hairstylist wore her golden locks in a beachy half-up-half-down style, accessorizing with minimal Nicole Rose pearl jewelry. "Honestly, I was very comfortable other than it probably weighing half as much as I did. I was in love," the bride told Page Six. The Maven founder switched into a second knee-length halter-top lace Zimmermann dress for the afterparty, which she paired with pearl heels. Brett Randle kept with the beach theme wearing a sand-colored Tom James linen suit with a white button-down shirt and casual brown loafers.

The bride told People that she tried on hundreds of dresses before ultimately going back to the gown that brought her to tears."I ultimately left the store still searching for 'the one' because I felt I needed to try on everything that was out there. And then the more and more I tried things on, I realize nothing compared to it; I couldn't stop thinking and talking about it. So I ended up flying back to New York and getting it," LeCroy said. The Maven founder pulled out all stops for her big day, even buying her gown its own seat on the plane.

The details and decor

They say it's all in the details, and Madison LeCroy didn't miss a beat for her big day. The reality TV personality entrusted her best friend Erica to orchestrate her big day, and "Southern Charm" fans might remember her planning the dog wedding in Season 8. Table settings featured simplistic white flower arrangements by Soeur Events, alongside tea candles and white plates and wood accents, as per People

The tasting menu had Southern flair, with guests enjoying chicken breast with gravy and quelite salad, topped off with the miracle Mayan plant chaya. "It's funny, we did a tasting for the food in February where we picked everything out. But they're on island time and came to us a few days ago like, 'What do you want?' " LeCroy told People. "They didn't keep track of it, I guess. So we were like, 'Just do whatever the chef says! As long as there's food, we'll be fine.'"

The bride danced the night away with her family and friends to music by Jordan Kahn Orchestra, enjoying a fire pit and fireworks to celebrate the end of her special day. The bride gushed about her new husband, who has a special relationship with her son Hudson as well. "He gives me butterflies still, for sure," LeCroy confessed to People. "I can't [tell] him that too much, 'cause I have to keep a little bit of mystery. But he's my everything."

The exclusive guestlist

Madison LeCroy's destination wedding was an intimate affair, meaning her "Southern Charm" co-stars were notably absent from her exclusive guest list. The bride told Us Weekly that she and her husband Brett Randle hosted 42 of their closest family and friends for the beachside wedding, in a tight-knit and low-key ceremony. "I honestly wanted to be able to spend time with those people that, you know, we know as a couple. And that was kind of the whole point. If they didn't know Brett and I and our relationship that well then, you know, they just weren't coming to the wedding," LeCroy told the magazine. 

The gushing bride told Us Weekly that the smaller guestlist was the perfect amount of people for their special day. "Kudos to you brides out there that have 200 to a hundred people. I don't know how you guys do it. Like that's some superwoman stuff, like, insane," the celeb admitted. Castmate Leva Bonaparte told E! News there were no hard feelings about not being invited. "I think that doing marriage in an intimate ceremony's probably the right way to do it," she explained.

Though her guest list was tight, moments from LeCroy and Randle's big day streamed via her partnership with Amazon Live. "I'm so happy I can share this with them," LeCroy told People. "They've been with me on this whole journey, ever since I announced my engagement there last year, and I feel like, what better way to share this with them?"

Hudson LeCroy's stamp of approval

From planning the proposal with Brett Randle to being a part of his mother's big day — Hudson LeCroy's relationship with his new stepdad is the sweetest thing. Hudson served as the ring bearer on the big day, where Bravo cameras were absent from the intimate beachside nuptials. "I've definitely found that forever partner," LeCroy told People. "What's so special about marriage is you become this unit. And for Hudson and I to be able to have somebody in our lives who just completes us is more than I could ever ask for."

LeCroy was married once before to ex-husband Josh Hughes with whom she shares 10-year-old Hudson. The hairstylist tied the knot at 20 years old, had her son two years later, and split with Hughes when Hudson was just three years old. But it seems Hudson has welcomed Brett Randle into his blended family without a hitch, even convincing his mother to have the special ceremony in Mexico. He even helped LeCroy decide on her gown, as per Bravo, telling his mom "I like whatever you like." He did have an opinion on a wedding dress with pockets, to which he asked his mom "Why do you need pockets?"

The newlywed talks babies and Southern Charm

Now that Madison LeCroy is a married woman, fans are curious as to what's next for the "Southern Charm" star and her life with her new husband Brett Randle. The hairstylist told Page Six that her son Hudson is already anxious for a sibling. "The first thing that Hudson said was, 'Now that you're married you can have a baby now. And I was like, 'Yeah, okay,'" she told the magazine. "I think he thinks that tomorrow we have a baby. So, you know, we've talked about it, and we definitely are going to enjoy a little bit of this newlywed phase." 

The Nike account manager has no interest in appearing on "Southern Charm," and he leads a very low-key life off of social media. But given that he's now officially a unit with LeCroy and her son, time will tell if Randle will make it onto our television screens in the future. "The more he saw how the last season came out for me, he was like, 'Okay, it didn't seem that bad.' But little did he know I took the B-roll for that," the Maven founder told the magazine. "So I think if I get a little more involved he might be like, 'Woah!'" LeCroy assured Page Six that the only reason her husband would join the show is to support her, as he stays far away from any and all drama.

Southern Charm cast mates weigh in on the nuptials

It wouldn't be a wedding for a "Southern Charm" star like Madison LeCroy if her cast mates didn't weigh in on the nuptials. While we all are wondering what her ex-boyfriend Austen Kroll had to say, the Trop Hop founder was missing from the overflowing comments section of her Instagram. Castmate Venita Aspen wrote "Unreal" on LeCroy's photo, and Page Desorbo wrote "This is so good," on another post. Patricia Altschul, Leva Bonaparte, and Kathryn Dennis all showed their love in comments on the photos the Maven founder debuted.

LeCroy told Us Weekly that she didn't need any congratulations from Kroll, as the exes seemed to patch things up when Season 8 wrapped. "His congrats that he gave me on the reunion was enough for me," LeCroy, 32, told the magazine. "He said he wished us well [on the show] and ... we're gonna leave it just as that."

Restaurant connoisseur and "Southern Charm" cast member Leva Bonaparte told E! News that while she has yet to meet Brett Randle, she believes LeCroy has met a good match. "The first conversation she had with me, she's like, 'He doesn't even have social media,'" Bonaparte continued, "I'm like, 'Yeah, that's the kind of guy you need.'" Bonaparte also noted that Randle's conservative Mormon background balances LeCroy out. "I'm super excited for her and I think he seems so wonderful, like a really, really nice guy and it's great for her and her son. I can't wait to see the pictures," she said at the time.
